If you are doing things properly your last meal shouldn't be contingent on your canned food supply unless you only plan to live a couple years after a major disaster. :)

Every city has a pantry foods store, even Cosco/SAMS club have institutional and smaller sizes of canned goods that might be a lot better than your local supermarket. Try there. Health food stores usually do you one better with non-meat high protein options that look and taste like beans and weenies if that's your thing. They also cost a bit less and have a typical 7-10 year shelf life.

Good luck.

Seriously?

You need to look a little harder. All of those meats can be found in cans. You can even get a whole chicken in a can.

Or were you messin with us?

#1 hit on Google for 'canned meat'.

Really, you've gotta give it some effort. They probably have canned chicken at 7-11. It's that common.

I was just talking Costco, sams club and such. But thnx. What's the word on canning your own meat? Sounds like a gamble...

I love Spam... Vienna sausages too :)

My grandparents (Moms side) introduced me to the canned mystery meats



To the OP... look around a little more, they have just about anything you can think of in a can now :clap:

Dude you have been reading my mind. I want to can up some home cooked baby back ribs. I was going to do a review when done. Smoked some ribs this weekend.

I use a rub for 24 hours and then smoke for 3 at 215f. The meat melts off the bone.

I want to take the meat off the bone and put it in a canner jar and can it up for long term storage. Can you imagine having smoked baby backs while every one else is eating their dead. :D

There's all sorts of interesting commercially canned foods---roast beef, white meat chicken, chilies, pastas, stews etc. you don't have to eat just fish, unless you want to.

Would the home canner have to vaccum seal in the goodies before it seals shut and wouldnt you need preservatives put in with the goodies?

Mine is a smokin tex . I cannot recommend smokin tex as I have had to change the heater, temp regulator and wheels. Cookshack makes a good smoker. They aren't cheap though.

Do you keep the temp at 215f when wrapping in foil? I have read the pros wrap in foil and add apple juice for the last 30 minutes.

I just ordered some kitchen gadgets from these folks and while I was at it I got the "sample pack" of canned meats (Beef chunks, ground beef, pork chunks, chicken chunks, turkey chunks) and a can of the Yoders bacon.

It should be here this week. Will report back after I've sampled it...


Problemchild: Those ribs look very tasty!
The wife & I used to smoke all kinds of stuff but it's been a few years...
You're motivating me to get my smoker up and running again.

Have you had any experience canning your own meats? With the ribs do you add any other liquids to the jars prior to pressure canning them, or do you just fill up the jars to the same level as other canned items? How about shelf life? The older lady that I bought my pressure canner from used to can salmon every year, but hers was always eaten within 12-18 months.

Underwood deviled ham, Underwood chicken salad, SPAM, corned beef hash....

You can also look in ethnic stores for canned food. Germans are big on preserved meats.

You can speed up the process by just smoking them to cook them, then wrap them in foil, then put them in the oven at about 300 degrees for about an hour.

That will lock in the moisture and the ribs will self braise.

I have done it that way, and I have also done my own braise and added that into the foil with them while in the oven. It doesn't make a difference in taste. And this way is more of a mess because there's more juices.

After doing it this way, you'll have a hard time handling the rack. They aren't just "fall off the bone" the bone literally slides out from the meat.

I have some canned rattlesnake that I bought at Ralphs last year! I also have canned shredded chicken, found in the tuna fish aisle. It's great! I have canned ham too.

For beef, I've never seen it canned, so I'll just improvise.... A-1 Steaksauce poured all over a plate of stray cat or dog tastes like...... Well, tastes like.......... CHICKEN!!! :D :D :D

Costco sells canned chicken. There is also Spam!

What about stuff like canned chili, stew and soup? Those would have some options with beef in them.

You can always can your own meat too.
